The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), the national bird of the USA, is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle’s scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word “bald” meant “white,” not hairless. Bald eagles are found throughout most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico.

This rather damp one is at The Falconry Centre – Hagley, West Midlands, UK
